We recently watched this TED talk by Emily Balcetis on perception and found it FASCINATING.
By focusing their eyes on the prize, “people who had committed to a manageable goal, and believed they were capable of the goal, actually saw [the task at hand] as easier”. Net net? Mind over matter – literally.
So, where you do need a slight mindset shift? Commit to a manageable goal and believe you are capable this week!
